My Stranger Things Fix

Loving this behind the scenes podcast of stranger things 3. I’m a late comer to the show but watched all 3 series in a fortnight, and now I’m hooked/obsessed and can’t wait till season 4.
Loving all the information behind ideas, locations, costumes and sets.

One thing tho.. I was hoping this pod would clear up if I was correct in thinking I saw Stan Lee at the mall? But no mention in epi 1 of the pod, nor can I find anything on the net.
